I found an awesome article written by Lisa Graas at NewsReal Blog about the idiocy of the Left having a blind eye when it comes to the detrimental aspects of Islam that translates into activist political hatred toward non-Muslims and Jews, particularly if the non-Muslims have the word “American” in their pedigree.
Graas’ article is aptly entitled “The Ten Commandments of Leftist Reporting on Islam”. Here is a list of those Leftist Ten Commandments:
I. Thou Shalt Not Take the Name of Muhammad in Vain
II. Thou Shalt Compare Radical Islam to Conservatism
III. Thou Shalt Keep Holy the Name of Islam
IV. Thou Shalt Honor Radical Islamists
V. Thou Shalt Ignore Islamists’ Murderous Jihad Against “Infidels”
VI. Thou Shalt Not Put the Rights of Women Above Islam
VII. Thou Shalt Bear False Witness to Protect Islamists
VIII. Thou Shalt Not Be Troubled by the Muslim Brotherhood
IX. Thou Shalt Embrace Dhimmitude
X. Thou Shalt Attack Those who Warn Others About the Dangers Within Islam
The reason this article is so important is because of the Congressional Hearing Chaired by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) about radical Islam in America. The Left and Muslim Apologists have gotten their backs up about the King hearings like a mad scared cat seeing a dog with big teeth around the corner.
On Sunday night I caught a glimpse of Geraldo at Large covering this protest which I understand was themed “I am a Muslim”. On Geraldo I saw Hollywood stars which were Leftists with really no particular affiliation to any religious claim, proclaim that those old Right Wingers were a bunch of ignorant folks who have turned into haters much like Hitler hated the Jews. In fact I heard and saw a Reformed Jewish Rabbi stand alongside Imam Rauf and wife Daisy Khan, the Muslim orchestrators of the New York City protest, boldly expressing his solidarity with Muslims. Obviously that Rabbi had not read an English translation of a book Rauf wrote in Arabic that upheld the principles radical Islam. Here is summary of Imam Rauf’s actual beliefs as the chief promoter of the Ground Zero Mosque which he likes to call the Cordoba House:
More Americans now know that Rauf, as recently as March, said in Arabic that he opposes interfaith dialogue. They know he is a vocal supporter of sharia law, that he says governments which do not employ sharia law are “unjust” and that he has refused to label Hamas a terrorist organization. They know he has refused to sign the “Freedom Pledge,” issued by Former Muslims United, which pledges to oppose retaliation and punishment toward Muslims who leave Islam. The more Americans learn, the more concerned they become. (Brigitte Gabriel;

Imam Rauf is not the voice of moderate Islam and yet I am not surprised the who’s who of Left Wing Hollywood and Leftist Pundits turned out for this display of deluded support for a couple of Muslims that would end the right of Leftists to protest if Sharia Law (GOD FORBID!) became the legal practice rather than the rule of law U.S. Constitution.
Here is a list dhimmi-wits that protested alongside the Rauf’s according to a Jim Kouri article:
Holding placards that read “Today I am a Muslim, too,” a few hundred people gathered at what the news media termed “the interfaith protest.” Attending the protest and speaking to the crowd were Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson and hip-hop producer Russell Simmons.
Other celebrities who showed their support include; Juelz Santana, Kimora Lee Simmons & Djimon Hounsou, Adrien Grenier, Cory Booker, Susan Sarandon, Swizz Beatz, Jermaine Dupri, Lorraine Bracco, John Legend, Heather Graham, Jim Jones, Kelly Bensimon, Reverend Run, Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian, Congressman Charles Rangel and others.
Getting back to the Leftist Ten Commandments on Reporting; there is commentary on each Leftist Commandment. Too bad the Leftists at the New York City protest did not read Graas’ for their own enlightenment out of the depths of ignorance. O shucks! It could be these here super smart intellectual Leftists might have kept their idiotic blinders to reality anyway.
At SlantRight.com there is simply way too much source html to handle Graas’ article. So posting at SlantRight.com will only have the links from the print page that divided the article into separate pages.
